AN IMPORTANT COLLECTION OF MEDIAEVAL SPANISH AND NORTH AFRICAN MANUSCRIPTS - PART III (LOTS 136-148)
The following thirteen manuscripts were copied in Muslim Spain and in north Africa. Ranging from the 13th century to the 18th century, they showcase the refinement reached by the Western Islamic culture of that period. These manuscripts, often copied in elegant andalusi maghribi script on high quality paper or coloured vellum express the taste and interest of the learned society of the Almoravids through to the Almohads, Merinids and Hafsids dynasties. Christie’s is delighted to offer in this sale the third instalment of this collection of manuscripts, the first two parts of which successfully sold at Christie’s South Kensington, 24 April 2015 (lots 248-263) and 9 October 2015 (lots 243-261).
